Off mountain trail

This trail is off the Lost Boy slope of Game Creek bowl. Much of it is a narrow track which opens into a wider expanse. Parts of it near the stream may require walking across it... read more

I just learned to ski and after three weeks of skiing my friends took me down the Minturm mile to the bar. The first half, after a good snow was filled with tons of fresh powder. The second half of the trail was icy and luge like, the whole ride down I spent trying to slow my speed down. By... More

This trail is off the Lost Boy slope of Game Creek bowl. Much of it is a narrow track which opens into a wider expanse. Parts of it near the stream may require walking across it if there's not enought snow. Should be done with a guide.

This is one of the best Saturday markets I've ever been too. So many good, fresh foods and a great variety. The crepes were a booming business and the roasted chillies were a great "take away" for my family. Enjoy - and eat your way through this quaint little town!

I have skied this twice with friends and aside from being off the beaten track, the reward is having a beer at the bar at the end of the run. A great way to end a spring day.

The drop in can be a lot of fun on a powder day, but there is a long luge like run out that seems to take forever. If you do it have a margarita at the Minturn Saloon to celebrate.

This is a out of bounds ski run made popular for it's deep powder and great dining at the end of the trail. This is for expert skiers that can endure the run out through river beds and over logs to a road in the town of Minturn where you walk in your snowboard gear or skis and end up... More

This is kind of a cool side trip. Take Game Creek lift up, follow to the Lost Boy run. Keep going past the "Warning - off mountain rescues can be costly" sign. Head down the mountain. The run "funnels" down to the bottom. It needs snow to be enjoyable. The run ends at the road in Minturn (I think Taylor... More

Eight members of our Cleveland Ski Club took the Minturn Mile and had a blast. I don't recommend it for average skiers and i don't recommend it for anyone if there isn't a lot of fresh snow. You enter the gate for the Minturn off Lost Boy Trail at Vail and from there you pretty much follow the trail down... More

Hi, to everyone who reads these little article. I remember the first time I went to vail, I was about 10 years old (today I'am 30), since then Vail Mountain has always offered a very good experience of skiing like new bowls, new tracks and even new mountains. But it was until 2010 that I discovered the Minturn Mile, about... More
